About There’s Been A Life: An Evening With Alex Norton

Since his first tentative steps on stage, Alex Norton's career has been both highly colourful and eventful beyond his wildest dreams.

He has worked with Billy Connolly, Dudley Moore, Rowan Atkinson, Johnny Depp and Clint Eastwood; appeared in iconic movies like Gregory's Girl, Local Hero and Braveheart and made an everlasting mark on British television as DCI Matt Burke in Taggart.

Uproariously funny and highly entertaining, Alex Norton takes us on an irreverent journey behind the scenes of a showbiz life very well lived.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for There’s Been A Life: An Evening With Alex Norton are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
